Heartgard Plus Chewables for Dogs up to 25 lbs - Blue 6 Pack
What is Heartgard Plus?
Heartgard Plus Chewables is a monthly meaty chew used for the prevention of heartworm disease and for the control of roundworms and hookworms in dogs.
Dogs (6 weeks of age or older and no weight requirement)
• Considered the most tasty heartworm chewable tablet (beef flavor) • Effectively controls heartworms, roundworms & hookworms • Only given once a month
How it works:
Heartgard Plus contains ivermectin, a broad-spectrum antiparasitic medication used to prevent heartworms. Heartgard Plus also contains Pyrantel Pamoate, an anthelminthic, used to prevent roundworms and hookworms.
Directions for Use
Heartgard (Ivermectin) is given once a month year round for the prevention of heartworm disease. The usual dose of ivermectin in dogs up to 25 lb is 68mcg – 1 tablet from blue pack, for 26-50 lb is 136mcg – 1 tablet from green pack and for 51-100 lb is 272mcg – 1 tablet from brown pack. Dogs over 100 lb are given a combination of the tablets.
This medication should not be used in animals allergic to it. Heartworm testing should be performed prior to the start of prevention therapy. If the animal is off ivermectin for 6 months or less, start the medication and test after 6 months since microfilaria, which take 6 months to mature, may result in a positive test result.
Possible Side Effects
The side effects of ivermectin are rare at the recommended dosage. Heartgard Tablets has a wide margin of safety for all sizes and breeds of dogs. It is approved for use in puppies as young as 6 weeks, small dogs regardless of weight, pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs, and Collies.

In addition to being a great product for heart worm protection, I really appreciate the meaty chew that my dog loves. Pills don’t work with him but he readiy accepts this form.

I have given this product to my fur babies since they came to me. No health problems. Ordering thru Sierra Pet Meds makes it very affordable to own multiple pets.

Great product, convenient way to purchase it
I have 10 rescue dogs and one that wasn't a rescue. Two of them came to me heartworm positive but could not tolerate the Immiticide shots the vet prescribed. It was recommended that we use Heargard Plus as a slow kill treatment, and after a little over one year, both tested negative. I also have two large dogs that are virtually untouchable, so being able to purchase preventative for them is vital. Sierra Pet Meds has made my life much easier, and my dogs safe from infestation!

I ordered this product for 2 german shorthair puppies. The cost is wonderful considering what they charge in United States. It is imperative you order early in time for shipping.

Freddie Really Likes 'Em... .
Freddie Really Likes 'Em and when I cut the chew into 6 smaller pieces He feels like He's done something special and is happy all day long. Most important is He's healthy and that's a good thing.

Exactly like the ones at the vet
Very satisfied. Price is good. Delivery as promised. And identical to the ones for way more at my vet.
